    i have a tivo hd with lifetime service on it with a dead 1TB hard drive.

    does the collective wisdom suggest i sell it as-is, or put a hard drive in it and sell? is it better to sell on ebay or here on the tivo forums?

    thoughts? THX!

    :confused:

    Depends on your technical skills. If you can do the imaging yourself and can find a good deal on a drive it would probably pay off to fix it. However if you have to buy a preformatted drive from Weaknees then it'll probably cost about as much as you would gain, so it's probably not worth it.

    Better to buy a cheap drive and repair it -- lifetime tivo hd have been selling at bargain basement prices on ebay.

    What became of the original 160GB hard drive?
